MBO & Co invests in the Service division of Klee Group alongside the founders and management

Founded in 1987 by Thibaud Viala, Samir Khanfir and Yves Weisselberger, Klee Group is a consulting and digital services firm specializing in the design, development and integration of innovative business and technological solutions.

The Service division, comprising Klee Consulting & Integration and Klee Performance, has enjoyed sustained development with an average annual growth rate of 17% over the last three years, establishing itself as a key player in digital transformation with a strong and longstanding position in the public sector in particular.

 

This success is the result of a very strong commitment to customers, constant efforts to innovate in the solutions and methods proposed, the involvement and competence of the teams and more broadly the distinctive “Klee culture” made up of ambition and spirit of collaboration. This formula has found a clientele looking for confidence, competence and efficiency to meet the challenges of their digital transformation.

 

MBO & Co is joining forces with the founders of Klee Group, who will retain a majority stake, and with the management team which will take a significant share of the capital as a result of the transaction. On the back of its solid fundamentals and drawing on MBO & Co’s financial know-how and experience in supporting high-growth projects, the Group intends to more than double its activity by 2026 through organic growth. This plan may be complemented by targeted acquisitions which would accelerate the innovation of the Group’s offerings.

 

Our choice was MBO & Co, a leading French investment company, close to Klee’s culture and which will be able to support us in our growth and advise us on the acquisition of complementary and value-added activities.” Thibaud Viala, Managing Director, Klee Group.

 

We were impressed by the remarkable track record of Klee Group’s Service division, which is rooted on its culture of innovation, its unique ability to address specific customers’ needs as well as on a very high level of commitment from its teams. We are very pleased to support the group’s talented management team in the next stage of its development.” Eric Dejoie, CEO of MBO & Co and Alexandre Chaton, Partner of MBO & Co.
